: we're in chapel hill, north carolina, where tar heels leading the pirates, 24-14. casey barth with a 28-yard field goal. north carolina has almost three times as many yards of offense as east carolina. outgaining them now, 302 to 101. this north carolina defense about as good as advertised. >> ray: they just fly around and get to the football. they have so many playmakers on that defense. and coach davis tells us, about a year away, he thinks. i tell you they're going to be scary coming down the road. >> pam: north carolina has a team, only has five senior starters. couple of them over on the defensive line. here is a squibler. picked up by dwayne harris. tackled down at the 25 yard line where east carolina tries to get its offense going against this stout north carolina defense. >> ray: let's look at some those defensive highlights from the first half. led mostly by the sophomore, robert quinn, number 42. he's been flying around making play after play. here he is with the sack. and he's picking up where he left off from last week. he's got five tackles for a loss. actually th
. >> pam: only a sophomore. sixth tackle from north carolina today. pinkney with time to throw. completes it to dwayne harris who is tackled a couple of yards shy of the first down. a 16-yard pick-up for the pirates. >> ray: this is a desperation time drive right now. for skip holtz and his team. i know there's 11:30 or so left in this thing. but if they really want to make a rally in getting themselves in it at the end, they need at least a field goal out of this drive. >> pam: facing a third and one. from their own 40. they're throwing for it on third and one. pinkney with a nice grab and boy joe womack got the high throw, gathered it in in front of deunta williams for the big first down. >> ray: this is something that they saw upstairs where they knew that they had just one high safety up top. and so you try to get the throw out in between that safety in the corner and that's what they were exactly able to do as pinkney put some mustard on that one and the throw got there before deunta williams could. >> pam: womack caught it for a 21-yard gain. on a third and one. pinkney throws back
's colleague, a report colleague from south carolina, observed and again i quote, he should apologize to the house, to the house. for the rule violation. mr. inglis went on to add, that would end the matter. i have made a similar representation to the republican leader. and i believe that would have ended the matter. i know that is what the republican leaders of the house thought would be appropriate and what the republican leader talked to mr. wilson about doing. he said so to the press. indeed last thursday based upon what a republican leader told me, not mr. boehner, that morning it was what i expected mr. wilson to do. as a result i held open the last vote last week, or the time between the last vote and the very last vote, to give mr. wilson an opportunity to express an apology to the house. as all of us know, many members have done that in the past. reflecting upon conduct they thought was not appropriate. and as a result they came to this floor. that's happened on both sides of the aisle. where members have done things that they thought brought discredit to the house and they c
of reaction to our report last night about the appalling new data out of south carolina that read like a statewide cry for health care reform. last night rereported that south carolina has among the country's worst women's reproductive health care. rates of teen pregnancy, low birth weight infants, and infant mortality that are among the highest in the country. the rate at which young women in south carolina received the important and effective hpv vaccine also among the lowest in the country. but wait, there's more. and it's all bad. the state has the fifth highest rate of obesity, it has the highest stroke death rate of all states in the country. and has maintained that distinction for five decades. it has the second highest death rate for oral cancer. the life expectancy in south carolina is the third worst in the union. if governor mark sanford, for example, decided to move to argentina permanently, he would be among people that would be expected to live a year and a half longer than south carolinians are, in argentina. south carolina needs better health care. and to get it, it may
the south carolina coastline. north carolina is getting nailed with some rain. that's where the worst of it will be. today and tomorrow, even into wednesday the delmarva, chesapeake bay will be raining, large waves. it's just going to be kind of ugly, like a nor easter. we have a big area of high pressure that's not going anywhere. the storm is trying to move into that area of high pressure, but it can't. so it's going to get stuck here right off virginia beach. maryland, delaware, you'll get nailed with rain in the days ahead. the worst today, the beaches of north carolina, coastal north carolina is getting a lot of rain. also, showers around pittsburgh. and we've got heavy rain in and around cincinnati and dayton. even thunderstorms early this morning. so the temperatures aren't the problem. the forecast, damp weather on the coast and a lot of clouds. so not quite as pretty as it's been. that's a look at your labor day forecast. now here's a look at the weather outside your window. well, louisville, kentucky, showers and storms are near you, too, this morning. kentucky to ohio is th
with a neighbor on changing the way the south carolina government works? we're the only state with a budget control board. in 49 other states, they do it differently. this is the only state in the union where the administrative functions are handled by the budget control board. in our state, in fairness to my predecessor, he was elected by the people of south carolina as a democrat. his first check was not the general assembly or the judicial branch. he walked across the hall to the lieutenant governor's office. it is a dysfunctional system. people would normally say this is madness. it was in the 1895 constitution, put forth by pitchfork ben tillman, about a black man being elected. other constitutional amendments are out there. could people pick one area where they want to make a difference and really make noise? >> i have supported reform in this state since i met you. i have defended you on reform issues. i think you have been selfless on that. if you had a decent relationship with the general assembly, do you think there would have been more done? i have been told by a number of people
panel. >> the joke is on south carolina. yet again. all that and more now on "countdown." >> oh, no, you did not! >>> good evening from new york. i'm lawrence o'donnell in for keith olbermann. on this date in 2001, this nation rallied together in the wake of the worst attack ever to hit these shores. eight years later, the pain of what happened that morning feels just as acute, but in our fifth story on the countdown, the concept of working together toward a common goal for the public good. in this case, improving access to health care, has perhaps never seemed so distant. congressman joe wilson's outburst at wednesday's joint address to congress in which he called president obama a liar for his claim that illegal immigrants would not benefit from health care reform appears to have become the new rallying cry for the right. at a rally organized by republican lobbying groups and attended by the republican leadership, once the name of president obama was uttered from the podium, the crowd, breaking into a chant of "liar, liar, pants on fire." >> last night, we heard our president address t
with a short story. in 1832, what we might today call a political scandal erupted in south carolina. thomas smith grimke e., a college graduate and trustee wrote u.s. senator john calhoun to shift positions and defend the union rather than persist in the defense of states' rights. when the letter became public, an angry mob appeared at his home, where he proclaimed his willingness to die for the union. fortunately the mob dispersed. the story ends badly as the pro-union grimke dies two years later and south carolina slipped toward the civil war a few decades later. nevertheless, this political scandal of 1832 might make some south carolinians proud today. we are not always so pleased with our more recent scandals. my name again is brian mcgee, chair of the department of communication and i have the distinct pleasure of introducing tucker eskew of the dment of communication advisory council. [applause] >> thank you, brian, thank you, all, to my fellow council members. we are here for political scandal, a truly bipartisan activity. we are very pleased to have a truly bipartisan panel. tripart

next. >>> plus, it seems like a south carolina kind of day. governor mark sanford today defended his decision to stay in office. but can he survive the ground swell of calls for his resignation this week by the statehouse republicans? >>> back to health care for a moment. could bill clinton become president obama's secret weapon to keep democrats in line when reform comes to a vote? that's in the "politics fix." >>> and we all know it's a bad idea to text while driving. well, it's not much smarter to text while you're on national television. virginia's eric cantor learned that lesson last night and we'll have it on the "hardball side show." but we begin with president obama and where the health care debate goes from here. senator jay rockefeller is a democrat from west virginia and a member of the finance committee. senator, congressman joe wilson from south carolina, it's like a mandatory question being asked by every politician in washington today, what was your take on it? >> my take was that it was a very small, i thought rather rode, interruption in a very important speech about

pelosi plans to hold a vote next week on whether to censure the south carolina republican if he does not apologize to congress for yelling "you lie" at the president. wilson formally apologized to president obama but has refused to say that he is sorry on the house floor and posted this video on his website. >> i will not be muzzled. i will speak up and speak loudly against this risky plan. the supporters of the government takeover of health care and the liberals who want to give health care to illegals are using my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical questions being raised about this poorly conceived plan. they want to silence anyone who speaks out against it. >> wilson goes on to ask for campaign contributions for those who agree with him but so far, his 2 to 010 democratic opponent, who seems to be raking in a lot of dough since wednesday night. former marine rob miller has received $750,000 and the dnc reports raising $1 million since that now-infamous "you lie" line. wilson not the only person talking about health care and immigration. this morning, the gang of
to a -- it was right at the beginning of the campaign. i went down to south carolina to a legislative conference where i was supposed to be one of the speakers. and i was sitting next to a state representative there. nobody was that excited to see me, you know. but i really needed some support and endorsements, south carolina was an early state. so i said to the state represent, will you endorse my campaign? and she looked at me and she said, "i'll endorse your campaign if you come to my hometown of greenwood, south carolina." so i had had some wine and i was feeling kind of desperate. i said, "yes, i'll come to greenwood. sounds pretty good." only to find out that greenwood's like a hour and a half from every place else. you can't fly into greenwood. about a month later, i'd been campaigning in iowa for weeks. haven't seen my family, i'm exhausted. i get into greenville, south carolina, about midnight. i get to my hotel about 1:00. i'm dragging to the hotel. i'm carrying my bags, ready to hit the pillow. and suddenly my staff says, "sir." i said, "what "they said," sir, you have to be in the car at 6
